Modelling Rivers


Rivers are natural water courses. They have vital contributions to the social and economical welfare of societies living along their course. They provide continuous, usually dependable, flow and supply of water. Accordingly, centralised civilisation began emerging independently along number of river valleys; e.g. the Nile, Tigris and Euphrates, the Indus and the Yellow Rivers. Since then, mankind has been in continuous struggle to understand and live in harmony with this gift/force of nature. Modelling rivers is the modern way to understand their behaviour and is an essential tool to tackle several river problems.

Delft3D is the state-of-the-art modelling framework for hydrodynamics, water quality, ecology, waves and morphology.
Here, in this space, we share knowledge & experiences, and discuss issues related to modelling of rivers.

Obtaining water levels/elevation in QUICKPLOT

Hello, I need to obtain water level/elevation output from QUICKPLOT. Is there a way to do so? I don't see it as an option in the drop down list. I've gathered that I may be able to use GPP to do so, but was hoping to obtain it through QUICKPLOT, as I am not familiar with using GPP.

Hi Audrey, using D3D Matlab-Toolbox you are able to load all of computed variables. You can find the Toolbox by OpenEarth or in trunk of Delft-Website:
